Sometimes the pain can be localized around the 3rd or 4th metatarsal. The two most common causes of this type of pain are either a stress fracture or tendentious of a metatarsal tendon. Athletes sometimes try and run through injuries such as heel pain, shin pain and achilles tendentious, which leads to this condition. In severe cases, even light weight bearing may be painful. The primary cause of of this condition is over pronation. This can be controlled via insoles.
